Schneller Name Meaning
German: nickname for a swift runner, from an agent derivative of Middle High German snellen ‘to hurry’. The word in Middle High German also had other meanings, including ‘penis’, so there is also the possibility of an obscene nickname. Jewish (Ashkenazic): nickname for a brisk or active man, from an inflected of German schnell ‘quick’. Compare Schnell.
